Before explaining what is an ACTION, it is necessary to do a quick overview of how is structured an App.
Each App (as well as a Web page) is constituted by a series of screens which is possible to navigate. In this way the user can navigate the whole application, visiting the pages he prefers.
Surely if an App has multiple screens it does not mean that the user, by magic, will be redirected to a certain page.
Here come into play the "actions" or commands.
In fact, for the user to navigate through the pages of the App it is necessary to insert buttons or icons to assign commands or actions.
When we assign a command to a button, we will ask it to perform a certain action, for example, open the page "Home".
This way, when the user will click that specific button, he will be redirected to the screen Home.
If for example we have an app with 4 screens, we must enter a series of elements that lead back to each of these screens. To sum up, we need to put actions that make us open the 4 screens of the App.
If we don’t, the user won’t have access to all pages of the application because the pages will be disconnected (unlinked).
In addition to the actions that we use to link pages, there are other actions that allow us to execute other commands.
Mobincube offers a list of actions that we can assign to any ELEMENT inserted in our application (such as text, images, tables, video, audio, etc.).

Once assigned an action to an element inserted in the App screen, we will have created an interactive App which allows the user to perform a series of actions and to make his experience even more enjoyable.
